As the release date for the much awaited HITMAN 2 fast approaching, Warner Bros. and IO Interactive announced today that international actor Sean Bean will star in the first Elusive Target mission for HITMAN 2.
In HITMAN 2, Sean Bean will take on the role of Mark Faba, a former MI5 agent turned freelance assassin. Notoriously known as “The Undying”, Faba’s reputation as a master of faking his own death is second to none, ultimately causing the ICA (International Contract Agency) to put imposing bounty on his head.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of the upcoming HITMAN 2 video game,” said Bean. “It’s always exciting to take on a new role, and I’m looking forward to everyone seeing my character in action when the mission launches.”
“We’re very excited to partner with the talented Sean Bean on the first Elusive Target mission in HITMAN 2,” said Hakan Abrak, Studio Head, IO Interactive. “Elusive Targets have become a distinguishing trait in Hitman games as part of the constant stream of free live content for all players to enjoy. This new mission starring Sean Bean is one of many updates, features, modes and franchise firsts coming to HITMAN 2, making the next chapter in our ever-expanding world of assassination a richer game for our passionate community and newcomers to the series.”
In addition, Warner Bros. and IO Interactive also released a new live-action trailer where Mark Faba, played by Sean Bean, is introduced speaking to his therapist and begins to hint at his unique approach to contract killing, as many random items in teh room could potentially serve as usefful weapons in Faba’s unorthodox profession.
Fans can look forward into killing Sean Bean when the first elusive mission, entitled The Undying, releases on November 20, one week after the launch of HITMAN 2. It will run for 10 days. Once the mission becomes available, players must stop Faba before he can utilize his expert surveillance, infiltration and demolition skills to complete a contract at the Global Innovation Race Event in Miami.
HITMAN 2 will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 13. Check back with us near the release date for our review and coverage of the game. Stay tuned.
